    I've been living in the UK for over five years and I've just been asked for the following evidence:

    Bank Statements - with evidence of regular activity
    Utility Bills
    Council Tax records
    Wage slips

    I only have a few of the original documents from back when they were sent to me.

    However, I was able to retrieve from the bank stamped documents which demonstrate regular activity.

    I also got in contact with my previous employers to provide me with P60 DUPLICATES. I told them I will require this in physical copy, sent to my home address.

    My confusion is regarding the word 'original'. I understand that you wont accept a printed copy of a pdf file, for instance, since that could be faked. However, if it is sent to me by the company on headed paper and stamped, will this be considered original? It surely is evidence.

    Edit: Can tenancy agreements be used as evidence? It doesn't seem to be included in the options.

    Hi AntSou29

    Original document is the actual document, not replicated. We can not accept tenancy agreements. If it on company headed paper and stamped the assessors will review it.
